Online news sources are reporting that the actress Brittany Murphy has died, following a full cardiac arrest. She was 32. Obviously I’m hoping this news isn’t true, but I guess we’ll find out more tomorrow. I can’t pretend to be familiar with every entry on her extensive filmography, but she did some fantastic work in Clueless, which remains a classic teen rom-com, and is always a fun watch. She was also very funny in Drop Dead Gorgeous and Freeway, not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of King of the Hill episodes she voiced, as Luanne.
This is just horrible news… and right before the holidays too… my heart goes out to her friends and family.
